The Crooked Creek SAG is a ton of work but is is worth it when you see the riders roll in and are excited about eating burgers and brauts on a wet day in the woods. So much fun! Thank you everyone for a fun time.  8)

I'll try and help out this year...
Can volunteers camp out there again? I know we did a couple years ago.
I have sent the park manager an email asking the question about camping Sept 20-21, 2013 if you are volunteering.
At the monthly Friends of Fort Harrison State Park meeting last night I asked the primitive camping question again and the answer was not yes or a no. There has been camping allowed in the past so ..... cross you fingers. There also is some exciting news about FHSP opening up Mellinium Grove for primitive camping. Stay tune...... 8)

I will be there as a Bus Host on both day! I am supporting the Hoosier Outdoor Experience via the Friends of Fort Harrison State Park (I am the President so I really have too.) It is amazing that this will be the 5th year of the event and people still do not know where Fort Harrison State Park is or they have not heard of the Hoosier Outdoor Experience. Please come out and share your love for the outdoors. 8)

Did some trail work with Huff last night clearing dead vertical standing trees, widing the trail between a vertical tree and a downed horizontal tree (huge), then honey suckel extraction.  8)

The Fairgrounds crew is bringing in a Bobcat at 1pm to help move and spread the piles.  Wheel b raking and shaping soon thereafter.  Come on by if you have time.  thanks!


Is Wheel B Raking a new trail building technique?   :)
There is an amazing amount of raking that is required for indoor track building, sculpting, and fine tuning.  ;D

The Bikes/Helmets/HMBA info has been delivered and the dirt track is built and aged with the first of many sprinkling of water. A big THANK YOUto the 5 volunteers that showed up to play in the dirt. It is smaller that last year but it will provide a great experience for the young at heart. Please volunteer to help, the weekends are very busy!  8)

I will not be able to pull the HMBA trailer down until late Friday evening or Saturday Morning.  So the first wave of volunteers is going to need bikes.

If anyone can tow a trailer with brakes (need brake controls), and would like to tow the HMBA trailer and bikes to the Show, please contact me seven three zero five zero four 6.

Or the first wave of volunteers can pick up bikes at the Fort Harrison HMBA Barracks and move them by car and truck to the show.  I will be down at some point on Friday night, either with the trailer of with cable locks.

There are also some orange vests in a plasic box in the barracks.
I have the capability and availability to move equipment Friday. I could be available by 4pm Friday to meet some folks to load up the bikes and stuff then move down to the Fair Grounds. I do not have a clue where to go once I get down there.
After talking with Paul Arlinghaus today I will be at Fort Ben at 2:30pm ( I will take two hours of vacation time to make sure to have the trailer out of the compound) TONIGHT! then we can proceed down to the fair grounds.  ;D

That's cool...any idea who it is or who took the photo?
Nope, but I have put a lot of TLC in the construction of the trail and Bridge so I recognized it straight away.  ;D

I saw that sometime last year also. I thought it looked very familiar! Very nice.
Also, I am friends with the guy in the Uncle Sam outfit on a bicycle - on the west wall of that Applebees... I like the local photos.
My wife and I were seatting near Tom's (Uncle Sam on a bike photo) it was taken at a Lawerence city July 4th parade. I am not sure of the year. I know he did it last year because I was in the parade with the Friends of Fort Harrison State Park and DNR.

I was in the AppleBees's on Pendleton Pike today and noticed a cool picture on the right as I walked in to the establishment. It is a huge photo of Schoen Creek Bridge 3 with a mountain biker on it, man was I one proud trail builder to see that. A Great job well done and a big Thank you to everyone that has made Fort Harrison State Park an Urban Mountain Bike destination in Indianapolis.  ;D
